To be fair, it's hard to judge. The pilot was a force of nature when it aired. People went crazy. Can't think of another pilot that created nearly as much water cooler talk, not even Lost.
The rest of the episodes were more conventional, until you got to Agent Cooper's famous dream sequence. The second season descended into ridiculous melodrama.
I'd suggest giving the pilot another try with your expectations set for quirky. If it finally lands with you, try the rest of the first season.
Or maybe acclimatize yourself to Lynch with some Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, and Mullholland Drive, first.
All Redd [Foxx] did all day was coke, grass and ****. . .
So our first network taping, name in big letters right on the set, Redd doesn't arrive at curtain call.
I go back to his dressing room, all I see is the girl doing his hair is sitting on him.
So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
I say, Redd, don't you know we're on camera?
Redd sticks his head up from between the hairdresser's legs and asks indignantly. . .
